concern and compassion for our state and the people of our state. >> president obama and new jersey governor chris christie standing together side by side surveying the damage from hurricane sandy. they have gone from adversaries to praising each other. my guest michael moore. we did cover the rockaway blaze in the midnight show on monday night in to tuesday morning. i was anchoring that toward though end. we were one of the first networks to get it on the air. >> but two or three hours after it happened. my point is, can you imagine if 110 homes were burning right now in los angeles. >> sure. >> it would be another three hours we heard about it. >> no. but you have to take it in the context of everything else going nonnew york. >> my point is that everything going on was putting reporters in three feet of water and seeing how far they blow. and that is not news. >> i don't agree with that. >> we already covered. but when a 18-foot surge comes over in lower manhattan. >> here it comes, whoa! that's it. why do you keep ali velshi in atlantic city hour after hour after hour with him b
in the key state of ohio. today the latest cnn poll shows obama with a very slight edge there, but there's everything to play for. today, the last jobs report before election day was released. unemployment ticking up to 7.9%, but at the same time, 171,000 jobs were created. no surprise, both candidates reacted differently to the news. >> today, our businesses have created nearly five and a half million new jobs. this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learned that it's actually 7.9% and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> mitt romney earlier today. you're looking at live pictures now from westchester in ohio, where rudy giuliani, the former mayor of new york, has given a blistering speech attacking barack obama. in a few minutes, he will be on this show live and exclusive to tell me why he feels so strongly why the president should leave the offic
. >> well, it's an important -- it's critical. it's a very diverse state. but you know, barack obama's very firm stand in saving the american automobile industry has paid important dividends in ohio. this morning i was in youngstown and youngstown, we produced the chevy cruz. that's a gm product that is the direct result of the president's intervention to bail out the automobile industry. >> as a former commander yourself, how do you think the president's done this week in terms of his role as commander in chief in what was really a national crisis? >> i think he's done extremely well in terms of his sympathy and empathy for the groups, his visit. i think he was smart not to go into new york city, where it's too congested, too many problems. i think he's also done well in terms of showing the power of the office by just the latest move of having the military assist in delivery of fuel. it also shows up the hollowness of governor romney, his flip-flopping. for example, on the issue of fema, he was suggesting months ago that maybe you don't need a federal emergency management agency, maybe yo
it makes our children #1. >>> president obama declared a state of emergency in delaware on monday and sandy has been pounding the state. gary tuchman is live for us. what's been going on there? it's been up and down all day. i've been watching your reports. tell me where we are now? >> great concern for the last couple of days who live here about the approach of sandy. this city sits on delmarva pennsylvania, three states, delaware, maryland, virginia, that's why delmarva. people were very scared. as it turns out, the center of sandy, 40 miles to the north near atlantic city, new jersey. the weaker end of the storm hit the town here. much flooding, cars under water, many homes that are damaged, streets under water. and four bette towns here. they've lost sand. however, the most important news, appears there are no casualties at this point. that is most important part of the story. also important to point out lots of power failures as well as the east coast. we've covered a lot of hurricanes but never when it's so cold out. a lot of people without power and no heat. that's tough. people for
last night about former secretary of state colin powell's endorsement of president obama. this is what sununu said and why it's creating a political firestorm. final question. colin powell has decided to opt for president obama again despite apparently still being a republican. is it time he left the party, do you think? >> well, i'm not sure how important that is. i do like the fact that colin powell's boss, george herbert walker bush, has endorsed mitt romney all along, and frankly, when you take a look at colin powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. >> what reason would that be? >> well, i think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states, i applaud colin for standing with him. >> with me now is new york mayor and obama supporter, cory booker. i watched you this morning. you seemed to be slightly biting your lip about this, but a lot of people have been getting very angry because they say whichever way john sununu tri
, why didn't he go after obama on the benghazi cover-up. >> why call the president of the united states a retard? >> because it's a synonym for loser. we were spending ten seconds on this or it's going to be another two years before i come on. >> now you're threatening me. >> i'm angry at the word police. i need an encyclopedia to see which words are appropriate and which aren't. >> no, you don't. >> explain to me why retard is inappropriate. >> what if i said imbecile, creton or moron. any of those words, as you know, has not become in the last decade or so a word that is synonymously offensive to people with disability. and is used in an offensive way about them by people. that is a difference. >> do you call people with mental disabilities retards, because i don't. i think that's a nasty thing to do. >> a lot of people do, to be offensive. yes. >> no, they don't. they absolutely do not. no one would call a down syndrome child a retard. it is synonymous with loser. you know perfectly well -- >> that's complete nonsense. wait a minute. wait a minute. that's complete nonsense. that's th
in a malibu state of mind no matter what state you live in. ♪ >>> the day after the devastation with governor christie president obama was back campaigning and five days to go until the election, jennifer granholm, former governor of michigan and republican strategist kelly ann conway, welcome to you both. >> thank you. >> let me start with you if i can, kelly ann. mitt romney a week ago was off a momentum and heading possibly to victory on tuesday. which ever way you look at this, this hasn't been a good few days for him politically. clearly the most important thing is the safety of the people involved. >> absolutely. >> and we accept that. but politically his momentum has stalled. the president has been out there being a president. >> it could be. but i'm with mayor booker and governor christie on this one, which is, it's so difficult to even a talk about politics at a time like this but you have tuesday coming up. you have early voefting going on right now in the states. so the events in front of them, i think it can go either way. people will either disassociate with the current events an
that stood out to me is the washington post abc poll, 48.56% obama, 48.49 romney. i mean, literally, negligible and even in the swing states it's too close to call. i don't think that's true. i think it's true on some of the national polls but they are not as relevant as the swing state polls and you're seeing incremental increases every day in favor of the president. so i think, you know, honestly, it's going to be a good day on tuesday for the president and therefore for the country. >> how damaging, kelly ann, was mayor bloomberg's endorsement of president obama? he's been holding off endorsing anybody. he's been well known to be an independent. he came out very strong and said president obama he believes in climate change and mitt romney doesn't. he also attacked mitt romney for where i believe the vulnerability is the endless flip-flopping. it's not a good thing that he endorses a former republican mayor, somebody totally influential, endorses a democratic president. >> he's been a republican and democrat and an independent. so i guess he has the luxury of endorsing anyone. i t
with chris christie and barack obama in new jersey how are things where you are? >> the devastation in the southern parts of our state, demand our attention compassion and prayer. power is still out to half of our city. and you know we announced the number of fatalities and we had three now in our city. one was in the form of a drowning and two today young women who had a generator hooked up and died ofpoisoning. some of them are created by people using generators. >> very sad story. but on a positive note, newark airport is partially open today. >> you know, we are happy that it is open and there will be more and more activity. as we get the arteries open, we had the announcement that new jersey tran transit buses are going to be running. it will bring life into our community and give people hope. they are not as stranded as they have been. and again, we are a major transportation hub. and frankly, help people who are stranded here get to where they need to go. >> mayor booker you have joined us every night live. please, stay in touch with us over the next few days. >> thank you ve
in the evacuation. meanwhile, in new jersey, the state hit hardest by sandy, search and rescue missions have gone on all day long. president obama will travel there tomorrow to vut damage along with new jersey governor chris christie. the governor surprised many people today when he called the president and i quote outstanding and incredibly supportive. words he probably wouldn't have used at the heart of an election battle last week. governor chris christie joins me from the state emergency command center. governor, thank you for joining me. i watched these extraordinary scenes over new jersey today. really quite unprecedented. i've never seen anything quite like it. have you ever seen anything like this in your lifetime? >> no, i haven't. in fact, piers, today i toured the jersey coastline both by helicopter, and i landed in two spots on the jersey shore. and i can tell you that i have never seen devastation like this in my life. not here in new jersey. you see sights like the seaside heights boardwalk, where the program "the jersey shore" is filmed, the boardwalk is gone. it is gone. amusement
. obama up by 2, 2 1/2, 3 points. in history, candidates overcome leads like that, it's pretty hard. a small lead, when you have so few undecided voters left, thard of the state already voted and turned out, it's challenging and that's romney's biggest hurdle, entirely ohio. >> have you been described as a potential one-term celebrity pollster. how did you react? you are a bit of a rising superstar. if you get it wrong, obama 75% chance of winning. if he were to lose now, will you resign? what happens to positivelister experts like you? >> this is where we give probabilities. a weather forecaster said hurricane sandy had a 30% chance of bad enough to warn the subway system. we give mitt romney a 30% chance of becoming president. 30% chance could come up quite a bit. some of the critics are not very good at doing math and probability, and in politics, people tend toward one side is always right, or everything is 5 50/50, and the real exists on the margin. and i think obama has an edge in the polls in ohio. >> are you seeing any polls in the last 24 hours which suggest that the hurric
